Home alone during a storm, two young brothers play a game to entertain themselves, a game that will quickly spiral out of control, a game that will have consequences as tragic as they are frightening.
In a dark alley, a man regains consciousness and discovers that he has superpowers. He can stop bullets with his chest, he can crush steel with his hands, he can even fly! He must be a superhero! The truth, alas, is something very different.
A young boy learns that his best friend is an alien. But does that mean they have to stop being friends?
